Baby Playtime

I purchase lots of my baby products online. The convenience of clicking and having the products delivered to your door is fabulous with a little one.

I recently came across the Baby Kingdom website and I’ve found it excellent for ordering baby products online.

The Baby Kingdom website offers quality baby products, organised in neat categories, with detailed product descriptions, including product dimensions and photos. I’ve found the user interface easy to navigate and best of all the products are competitively priced!

I ordered the Jolly Kidz Smart Hexagon Playpen in Natural from the Baby Kingdom website. It arrived in a couple of days in a convenient flat pack. I chose the Jolly Kidz playpen because it was simple, large, made of solid timber, represented good value for money and seemed easy to assemble.

So I unpacked the playpen and started to assemble it. The playpen comes with six timber segments to form the hexagon, twelve durable blue plastic safety corners, an Allen Key and some screws. My advice is to screw the rounded safety corners on each timber segment first and then the playpen fits neatly together with simple press buttons.

I was impressed by the proportions of the playpen. The timber frame is an ideal height for baby and the large area gave the playpen a spacious feel. The timber frame has a smooth natural toxin free finish, so Baby will be safe if she decided to test the timber with her two new teeth!

So with the playpen assembled, I scattered Baby’s favourite toys around and placed Baby in the centre of the playpen. I watched closely for her reaction. She crawled around her new playpen a few times, smiled at her toys and after a while of playing gave what appeared to be a nod of approval. It was rather a ‘nod of approval’ or a ‘very tired nod’ – after playtime in her new play space her afternoon nap was much longer than usual!

The playpen comes with six straight connectors for extension and a play mat is also available to compliment the playpen. For more information on the playpen and accessories, visit the Jolly Kidz website

    Thanks for letting us know about the baby kingdom. The site looks great and I’ll definitely be set to do some purchasing online in the near future. I love the playpen too. Big enough for a tribe of babies!

    I’ve looked at both sites and I think the playpen is a good size. It’s light weight so convenient for parents. Stoppers at the bottom of the playpen would be a good innovation!

    Good to know! babyproofing is imminent for us and a playpen could be a really good solution. I’ll check out the link & see what other products are available too. Baby looks pretty cute in there :)

    I think the playpen will be necessary as my baby daughter starts to move around to keep her safely contained. I’ll checkout the Baby Kingdom website.

    My 7.5 month old baby loves his playpen and when I take him out he wants to go back in. I think the Jolly Kidz playpen is a good size and the idea that you can extend it is great – especially if you had two babies.

    From an engineering perspective – the hexagon shape is stable for active babies. The Jolly Kidz timber playpen looks good too. I think my baby would like to test her teeth on the rails too – so a cover would be helpful.
